Natural and planned beauty: Tucked between the mountains of Southeast Tennessee, Chattanooga is located along the beautiful Tennessee River. Our city's renaissance has received international acclaim, and there’s more to come.

Outside magazine named us the "Best Town Ever", twice. Forbes says we’re the "best work-from-home city" in the U.S., and the New York Times, Fortune, Lonely Planet, and Southern Living all agree — we're a top destination. It truly is one of America's most breathtaking cities.

UTC is located within walking distance of downtown Chattanooga’s restaurants, shops, and parks. And outdoor adventure? Chattanooga is nationally recognized as an outdoor recreation hub where students can bike, hike, climb, paddle just a few minutes from campus.
